I can't stand my own son!

He is 2 and autistic.  I dread picking him up from his autistic school everyday.  He has become so violent! I feel so badly for him because I know most of the time it is just frustration because he can't talk. However sometimes, he'll kick our dog in the stomach and laugh. He busted my nose the other day during a fit.

I've tried everything! spanking, time outs, rewards, I am all out of ideas

HELP!!!

I really am kind of at a loss for words. Your poor son is struggling he needs you to help be his voice. Set up a meeting with his teacher, ask what she does for communication. Use a picture book for communicating. Don't spank it is not effective since he does not understand. Get yourself a therapist you seem overwhelmed.

2 is a very hard age, autistic or not. I literally felt like I suffered through it with my second son most of the time. And even my first son, who has always been so well behaved, made me feel like putting my head through a wall from 2 until he turned about 4. Just keep pushing through and make the best out of each day, stay consistent and it WILL pay off for you soon even though it don't feel like it sometimes.

maybe you need a different one? do you share how you feel about him?

Surround yourself with people that add to your life not subtract from it.
